I know everyone claims that potatoes do well in hugelbeets, how about sweet potatoes? I'm near Louisville Ky, and we have a heavy clay soil that if unadulterated makes sweet potatoes grow like long skinny carrots, so thought a hugel bed might work. Any thoughts?
Sounds like a plan. Of course adding some manure and organic matter and such will do the same thing. Sweet potatoes, in my garden, really like a hump. The bigger the hump you rake up for them, the easier it is for them to grow big. Ours grow to the size of footballs. Mebbe too big? But grow they do! Good luck!Best, TM
